Our Client was charged with Felony Aggravated DUI. Police were dispatched to a Battery in Progress. When they arrived on the scene, they claimed they saw our Client driving a vehicle without wearing a seatbelt. They claim to have pulled our Client over and he immediately exited the vehicle. They said they smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from our Client's breath, that our Client could not stand on his own and that he had slurred speech. Our Client also supposedly made a confession that he had 10 beers to drink prior to the arrival of the Police. All charges were dismissed at the Preliminary Hearing.
Our Client was charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance. She was facing up to 3 years in prison if convicted. The Police pulled over our Client's vehicle. After the stop, they claim they saw our Client making movements attempting to conceal something inside the seat of the car. The Police claimed that upon further inspection, they saw a metal crack pipe in plain view on our Client's lap along with 9 hypodermic needles and a bag of weed. They also claimed that when they ordered our Client out of the vehicle, they saw a large bag of narcotics sticking out of her front pant pocket which contained 6 additional bags of heroin. Although the case went beyond the Preliminary Hearing Stages, we were able to convince the Prosecution to dismiss all charges against our Client.
Our Client was charged with slicing one Victim in the face with a knife causing injury and permanent scarring and battering another Victim with a bag of garbage. The prosecutors were offering jail time only. We rejected the offer and took our Client's case to trial. At trial the prosecution was not able to prove the battering of Victim #2 with a bag of garbage and the verdict was not guilty. We were also able to prove that our Client was acting in Self Defense when he cut Victim #1. As a result the verdict was NOT GUILTY on all counts!!!
Our Client was charged with 3 separate cases: A Felony Residential Burglary, An Attempt Felony Residential Burglary and a Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance. He was facing up to 15 years in prison if he was convicted. It was alleged that our Client broke into someone's house and stole a digital camera, laptop, iphone, wallet, credit cards and a bookbag. While inside the house, he was confronted by the owner and chased away. Our Client was also caught on camera in another instance attempting to break into another person's house. After unsuccessfully trying to break into the house, he committed multiple acts of vandalism and destruction of the Victim's property. He was picked out in a line-up for that incident. Finally, our Client was also stopped police after they were alerted that he was trying to pick-pocket some people. When they searched him, they found 22 bags of narcotics. Although the case went beyond the Preliminary Hearing Stages we were able to convince the Judge to go along with TASC probation for our Client over the Prosecution's strenuous objection. TASC probation is a special kind of probation that includes drug treatment. If our Client successfully completes the probation, he is eligible to have his convictions vacated and avoid having these felonies remain on his permanent record.
